  • You'll probably know who this is based on the name. All the names I tried to register with wikia were taken. What's the best way to get contact with you?

  • Why did you copy the FF article to this category? Seems like an error - should it be deleted?

  • Just noted that the broken images in Miss Macross are a result of your moves of those images. And the broken template in Bye Bye Sheryl - the result of you renaming Template:Infobox/Episode and deleting the old one without leaving a redirect. I strongly suggest that you use Special:WhatLinksHere before moving anything, and then either leave the redirects or fix broken links (IIRC images don't work with redirects and require link fixing, but templates support it). This is not the first time I noted varioius red links etc. that you've created this way. Pretty please with cherry on top - an experienced wiki user like you should know better then to break things like this. Cheers,

  • I think I finally found a source for the X spelling in one of the MDelta specials; 4th I think? Where Messer is delivering the pizza, the box has latin script that spells XAOS. I haven't seen a better source yet, did you?

  • As I am sure you are aware, there is no clear English terminology (http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/topic/33597-macross-translations-and-more/ , etc.). The redirect is helpful. This term is used throughout the Internet and this wiki. I see no ground for declaring that New Unified Government is more or less correct than New United Nations Government, unless you can show me a screencap of that phrase in the animation. (Not sure how official we can consider dubs to be...).

  • Why did you delete it last year? I'd wager a guess you moved it to Category:Species? It is now a red link from this wikia front page (illustrating my point that deletions should be carefully thought out, least they leave red links). If so, I suggest restoring it as a category redirect to fix broken links.

  • There are few pages out there I cannot edit to add links, etc. I left comments on heir talk pages, you can find them quickly through wiki activity or perhaps by some special page listing protected pages. I doubt any pages here need protection for more than few days, if at all (main page aside, due to its high profile visiblity, plus I have no reason to edit it right now anyway). Thanks in advance,

  • I wanted to say I appreciate the tremendous amount of good work you have been doing here for years, and I am happy to adjust my edits to meet the style that this wikia prefers (past, no direct refs to episodes outside footnotes, etc.). I hope we can work together without any conflict, but pretty please - do not undo my contributions unless they are clearly wrong. If there are minor style issues to fix, ping me and I'll fix them soon (if you cannot do it yourself for whatever reasons). Removing big chunks which I spend time formatting/etc. is, as I noted, not a welcoming attidude, which I'd expect any wikia starved for active contributors should extent do any new active user. Cheers,

  • I just noticed that when  you redirect Chaos to Xaos you forgot do copy my content from http://macross.wikia.com/wiki/Chaos?oldid=26447 . This is not helpful. Further, you did not cite any sources why Xaos is preferred to Chaos, through I am preparred to trust your judgement on that. But please, don't remove/delete/obscure other's hard work during your cleanup without a rationale. When I remove content by another editor on a wikia, I usually explain to them exactly what they did wrong, unless it is obvious. Past tense and episodes references (which I will avoid) are minor issues that can be easy fixed without removing 99% of the content.

    I also found other articles you removed my content without any rationale: Sara Nome, Reaction weaponry... I understand that in Sara Nome you'd want to remove the in-text episode ref, but you are undoing my edits by a wholesale, and this is not an attitude conductive to friendly collaboration.

    • I have contacted the founder of the Compendium, Egan Loo, before (not to request use of content but something else) but he never responded. So if you want to ask Egan if you can use the old Compendium pages' content, he'll likely not respond. The edits on the wiki version of Compendium is mostly by MW users, and like MMM, I have communicated with them on MW and I trust their word heavily. But in order to establish Macross Wiki's own trustworthinesses, we ourselves need sources.

      These are all secondary sources, we aim to record information from the primary sources; mostly anime and what the owners of Macross have written about it in official documents like Perfect Memory, Chronicle and their websites not what other fans, although experienced and well versed, have written. If you must use Wikipedia, ja.wikipedia.org has much more content on Macross than en.wikipedia.org.

    • That's very helpful. I recognize you are much more familiar with Macross sources and sites than I am, therefore I would like to ask if you could create a page listing various Macross sources, and your analysis of why they are good or bad. Before talking to you I never really new about why some of them are better or worse, and I expect most fans and potential contributors are as clueless. Copying your notes from our discussion would probably be enough for half of that content. As for my input, I've created the entry for Perfect Memory, so it is no longer a red link.

  • Sure, I understand why Category:Fictional companies is deleted (in-universe), but what was wrong with Category:Companies? How are we suppsoe to categorize them? 

    I'll also note that Category:Fictional companies is still used in a number of articles... it seems clear that it should be removed, and replaced by Category:Companies, which should be a part of Category:Factions by Type.

    Oh, and yes, we have Category:Manufacturers but it is not identical with Companies. General Galaxy is both a company and manufcaturer. S.M.S. or Chaos are just companies.
